Twenty organizations, including the AHA, last week urged congressional appropriators to provide $485 million in fiscal year 2022 funding for the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education program.

“Since Congress created the CHGME program in 1999, children’s hospitals have been able to grow their training programs significantly, increasing the number of pediatric providers and addressing critical shortages in pediatric subspecialty care,” they wrote. “Today, half of all pediatric residents are trained at CHGME recipient hospitals. However, sustaining pediatric training programs at children’s hospitals to meet the needs of children—now and in the future—requires bolstering our national commitment.”
